Crime

I’m sure I was not your first, but I hope that I am your last. I thought that it was me. I thought that I was drunk, forgot that I had said yes. When I finally came to, I didn’t know what was happening. I was scared. You scared me, both of you. I didn’t even know your names. I told you to stop… I guess stop just wasn’t a word in your vocabulary. Instead, I was pinned to the place that I slept every night without a worry in the world. I never thought this would become a place where I couldn’t sleep because the darkness was daunting. The thoughts were too much. I kept replaying it over and over in my head. I could barely see your faces, but I remembered everything I could about you: the way you smelled, the way you talked, what you said. I can still hear it to this day. “We...

To the person who drugged me, Did you know what you were doing? Why did you do it? Why did you decide me? What were your intentions? Was it my fault? I have so many questions for you about that night. Although let me ask you some questions, did you know that the dose of GHB you gave me was lethal, did you know that my body was going to go into respiratory arrest, did you know I was going to be unable to breathe on my own and put on life support? Let us backtrack a little here. It was a Friday night, I was out with my best friend, and somewhere in that bar, you were there. You saw me, and that's when you decided to act. I was standing by the bar and turned my back from my drink. You took that as an opportunity. Was it a thrill for you? Was it exciting to see me fall into your trap...

dear officer, I lost hope in the police department in my town the day three adults were allowed to beat up my little cousin me and my older cousin. I suffered from a permanent concussion. I was a happy loving child. I still believed in unicorns and happy endings. Then that day my life changed for everything. My dreams were as big as the sky. I thought I was limitless. After that day I had to go to doctors all the time (I was in a doctors office or hospital more than I was at home or school) I developed post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety. for the first time ever that day I remember thinking when I turned 18 I'm leaving this town and will not return. You know what the cops told me? "I shouldn't have been walking down the street." they were seriously blaming me. I was...

I read the book in Cold Blood, by Truman Capote, For a class assignment, and It’s about the clutter family getting murdered, and also about the two murderers and why they did it. The Two murderers had little to no connection to the clutter family and still killed them. The event that led me to my issue is the clutter family’s murder. They were murdered for what seems like no reason and they had no reason for being murdered. It’s also that the killers were able to kill an entire family in just one night. In the book one of the Neighbors tells another “BECAUSE HE’S DEAD” (pg.69) and it surprised them because they never thought anything bad could have happened to the clutter family. I connect to this because I want to be safe, and I don’t want to be murdered. If I be safe and protect...

You probably didn't really notice me today. I accompanied my boyfriend on a long drive and throughout the wait when he had to give testimony as a witness in another person's trial. I was simply a face in the courtroom, waiting anxiously for my boyfriend to do what he had to do so we could take the drive home again and be done with it. Just before the trial came that would require his testimony, there was another man who was on trial for a crime he had committed while he was having mental health issues. Luckily the crime had only been an infraction of some sort and he was there, not to try to get out of it, but to request more time to pay his fine, which he had neglected to pay during the aftermath of the episodes he had suffered due to his mental illness. During the trial, his...

Dear West Midlands Police and Humberside Police, Your forces are the two main aggressors in the complaint I am making. I am not in your area and am in fear so I won't give my address. My date of birth is ************* Your officers are persistently abusing twitter and causing major distress and misleading the general public for their own ends. I am contacting you because I am a vulnerable victim of needless police violence and I am being profoundly upset by a propaganda campaign on twitter that is offensive and is abuse of twitter and is being carried out by officers from your force among others. I call this campaign the spit propaganda campaign. The police spend too much time on twitter, quite a bit of showing off and seemingly not much work done. But recently they have...

Dear Mr President, I wish to bring to your attention a troubling development in Rwanda's business and investment climate. This is, of course, an area in which your organization regularly showcases Rwanda as a star performer. Your 2017 Doing Business Report ranks Rwanda 2nd in Africa after Mauritius, and 56th globally out of 190 countries. These rankings notwithstanding, there are signs that Rwanda's broader business and investment climate is not what it often appears to be. Allow me to illustrate this with a recent example. On January 5, 2017, businesses and nonprofit organizations operating in residential premises or homes converted into offices were given three months to relocate to commercial facilities. By the end of March 2017, all businesses and nonprofit organizations...

To my peers who believed him, It has been almost a year since everything happened and almost nothing has changed the way I feel about it since I decided I was important. While this may have been chalked up to a scandal or an "embarrassing moment" to the public, this was a critical turning point in my personal life. I spend a lot of time awake at night wishing I had woken up January 25th, 2016 with my respiratory infection and chosen to stay inside and rest up. I wish my last public mistake didn't leave me so vulnerable that I felt the need to surround myself with people despite the fact that I could not breathe. I spend a lot of time wishing I had trusted even my buzzed instinct to move away from him when I got into the trunk of the car because I knew he was trouble. I wish...

December 19th 2016 Dear Chief Carl L. Harvey, On December 19th 2016 shortly after 12:30am 2 Officers of the La Sale Police Department knock at my door. I did not know who was at my door as I hear it pounding. The expression "Knocking like the Police" came to mind. I was in the bathroom as I wondered if that noise came from my front door or my neighbor’s door. I immediately got nervous since I notice the intensity of the door knock increasing. I approach the door carefully since I didn't know what dangers I may have encountered at this time of night. As I opened the door I saw what appeared to be two officers of the law. They asked if a particular person was here. (I honestly don't remember the name, my roommate remembered the name). I answered "That [name that I don't...

Really, this letter if for anyone who has the same idea about someone you know who makes you want to harm them right now, but my focus is mainly on the gunman. If you’re out there and trying to plan out your days, how you’ll stay out of the radar and keep your freedom, I have a question for you. Who are you? Are you in pain? Ok, that’s two questions. And I will probably give you my opinion at the end of this letter. But honestly I have more. I was just wondering actually, how did you get to the point where your only choice in your particular situation was to take out a three year old? No, Seriously. What made you want to do it? I picture a variety of people who could have done this and their reasons. I have been accused of being too nice and forgiving and I know my accusers are...
